Alistair, why did you choose Law?
"I wanted to study something which was both abstract and practical - law seemed like a good prospect. I also really wanted to do a year abroad, but didn't want to study foreign literature. Most universities offered a law course where you could go abroad and study another legal system - it seemed like a good fit."
What would you have done differently about your application?
"In retrospect I think a little bit more information about what the interviews are like could have been useful! You can't really 'revise' for the interviews, but having a little extra confidence in the process would have been good."
